. the debt limit is later on. we don't know the timing of that. i don't know if you had jack lew here or not -- >> we did. >> he was able to do more extraordinary measures. that could be into the summer as late or spring but i do not believe we will have -- >> the debt limit -- >> that's going to go on later. these are disjointed events. i do not believe that you'll have the kind of theatrics surrounding that as well. >> why do you think that it will be different this time within your own conference because the speaker didn't want the crisis that happened the last time. i think and correct me if i'm wrong, i don't think you did. >> that's correct. >> but yet you couldn't control your own members. how can you prevent that from happening again? >> obama care is here now. so you know the reason this happened from our perspective was -- now people understand why we fight obama care so much i guess. you have to understand the mindset of a house republican going into this. we were doing all of these oversight hearings, getting all of this testimony, seeing that this program was not ready fo
the next 48 days. >> i don't think the estimates were -- >> i know the estimates weren't there, but if you do the math, that's how it works. i yield back. >> i thank the gentleman. i'm sorry that you have to look at his figures. in fact, the burn rate necessary to get done wasn't understood from day one. and the surge requirement at 4:30 in the afternoon or 5:30 in the afternoon pacific time wasn't in fact what you were looking at. because i know mr. vanroers kel would understand you need two or three or four times the capacity of when people are actually going to log on and try to do it. miss loomis is recognized. >> thank you, mr. chairman. mr. chao, you said high risk is a vulnerability that could be expected to have a severe or catastrophic adverse effect on individuals, or organizational operations or assets. i want to focus on the part about the severe or catastrophic adverse effect on individuals. is it true that there were two high risks that were continued to be found related to the market place information systems, but you weren't told about them at the time? >> i think you're re
there are is the risk of that happening. i don't know that we have any evident of it actually happening and how the insurers, once they have a little more experience with reference pricing and see how charnls, if they have their payment tied to charges, we'll have more evidence of whether there is that kind of cost shifting within a facilities procedures. i think it's while it can "happy-go-luck "happy-go-lucky "happy-go-luckhappe limit, it should not on the front end. >> yes, david. >> we get the same question. well, for the hips and knees, kind of looping back around. as you saw in our numbers, we didn't actually see an increase in volume over the time and then in the're three procedures, i think we've seen a little bit of increase in colin os ko pi, but that isn't necessarily a bad thing. for a screening like that, it's probably a good thing. >> yes, ma'am. >> my name is lisa summers. i'm with century health care institute. my question is -- given cpr's work on maternity care payment reform. certainly, o b care is not entirely elective once you're pregnant, you have to deliver, but women cer
schedule, does anyone think it was a green project? >> i don't think so it should not have been green. there should be flags on the dash board and better transparency. the other thing is pro active governance. we look at the i.t. reform plans and things in the bill, legislation, proactive governance is very important and it's great and i'm pleased that everyone is involved now. we need that up front on important projects not when things go in the tank. we need it up front. the same when projects go into the tank we get engaged with the contractor more. why don't we engage with the right executives up front. i know there are a lot of projects and priorities, we need to find a way to tackle that better. >> i yield back. thank you. >> thank you gentleman from vermont. the gentleman from pennsylvania is recognized. >> i thank the chairman. i too want to join in this sentiment that i appreciate that you are legitimately trying to work on this and we all are and i chair the cyber committee and i reflect many of the people out there that with the concept of frustration, in many ways when i t
to us before making those statements. i don't know if we authorized that statement to be made. the point is that if we allow the companies on an annual basis to publish these statistics, it it's going to simply provide additional information out there as new companies come online and pop up you may have a company that for a period of years shows no orders and then all of a sudden starts showing orders and that conveys a message that says, we have the capability to collect this now. the more detail we provide out there and the more we break this down by authorities and companies, the more easy it becomes for our adversaries to know where to talk and where not to talk. what we have agreed to allow the companies to do is to report the aggregate number of times in which they provide information to the government and that seems to me is an adequate way of providing the public the information they need to know about the minuscule proportion of times in which that actually happens and breaking it down nurt in our view crosses the line of the balance between transparency and national security. >
-- i don't believe the public would be as angry if the crisis -- if the economy hadn't turned way down and if they weren't suffering. they wouldn't be as angry if banks were propped up, failed banks in their current form. which is what david got in to with the perception of the american public. they don't understand why an institution fails, should be bailed out, propped up in its current form. i think regulators have an important tool. but i frankly, you know, it's interesting, when i go through this every time someone says something, i want to do what barney did, stand up and make a comment or interject because the comment was made, well, we don't have orderly liquidation authority, it looks like we have the basics, but we don't have everything fleshed out in a lot of detail. it ain't ever going to be fleshed out in all the detail you need. the key is going to be how those sitting in the seats choose to use it when the moment comes. if they care about being criticized and care about the public reaction, they will fail. one of the things that i saw during the crisis was a big collisio
of patriarchy and couldn't decide when to have children. we're walking around on a history that we don't know. and there are many women trying to bring it back. and there's a friend whose work you should look up as well. who has written a book called everything we want once was here. and that's not only true of native cultures in this country, but also of cultures in southern afterry car, who will take you out into the desert and dig a hole and show you what they use for contraception, for headaches, migraines. it's true of the original cultures of 95% of human history. don't let anyone tell you that it's human nature that we live this way. no, it once was different, and it still could be. native women are very funny about it, you have to have a sense of humor, given what they've gone through. what did columbus call -- primitive, equal women. >> we are almost out of time, we have one more question. before that, just a couple housekeeping matters. first of all, i'd like to remind you about our upcoming speakers. on december 3rd, we have manuel santos, the president of columbia, on december 16t
. i don't think that is all that helpful because you really are not giving people an idea of how much is -- you're mixing apples and oranges. how many wiretaps and mobsters. to me it it doesn't create the kind of transparency that creates the kind of knowledge the american people. i have some time. >> i guess i can go. over my own time. i have seconds and will try to answer a question. i understand that you think that my bill would require too much e detail. i'm going to weigh that feedback very carefully. but i do want to point out that when i drafted the government reporting requirements and the bill i modelled them after the wiretap report that they release every year. if you look at last year's report it breaks down the number of wiretaps by specific jurisdiction and breaks down those numbers by the nature of the wiretap. last year's wiretap report shows that federal prosecutors in manhattan secured wiretap orders for mobile phones 48 times in 201 while their colleagues only broke them five times in the same period. the wiretap report contains a wealth of information and nobody is
did, which is reach out and get 61% of the hispanic vote. perry got -- >> you don't have an immigration bill. >> governors can do it easier than congress mmen and senators but governors need to reach out to the immigration communities in their states, in their cities, in their congressional districts. i believe we will see an immigration bill. i think the danger comes from whether obama really wants a bill. and the reason to wonder about that is he was president for all of 2009 and all of 2010 with congressional people in the senate. he didn't talk about a bill, woke up, went to bed. >> but. >> i'm talking about the -- the bill passed to the senate, not particularly my cup of tea, but it got a conversation going. what you do have is serious border security. not 47,000 troops on the border but border security. and you want to have something there for high tech, for the farming industry, and you want to do something for the people who are here so they don't have to live in the shadows and regularize their ability to be here and continue to work. >> where is grover norquist
and knowing who -- most americans don't know who their state legislators are, and that's why they are able to -- an anti-choice right wing minority is able to do this state by state. and it is very much about backlash against the changes in this country. i mean, they're very clear. white women are not having enough children, they say to me. you know, and it's why the issues all go together. so, you know, anti-immigration, anti-birth control, anti-abortion and so on. so we have to take back our state legislatures. >> citing the example of working moms versus stay-at-home moms, a questioner asked, what are your thoughts on the way women treat each other? >> well, if we were ever asked a question that included men, we might give a better answer. i mean, do we ever ask men, can you have it all? you know, we need work patterns that allow everybody to work and also have a life and have kids if they want to. men too. the whole idea of stay-at-home moms and moms who -- i mean, the language is bananas. women who work at home work harder than any other class of worker in the united states, longer ho
the president's been shot. and i said to her, don't be spreading rumors like that. but with that, someone came to get me, and we went into the waiting room, you know, with everyone else, and we watched television just like everyone else did. and then the series of orders came to me, because i was medical officer. it happened just as fate would have it. medical officer of the day. and so i got orders to go first to the white house, second to the capitol and third to the grave site. >> let's start with the white house. this was the first time you'd been inside the white house? >> first time i'd been inside the white house. i'd been in the rose garden a couple times. and on the lawn with my camera. and i only have one picture of president kennedy in the rose garden, and he's standing on the porch with someone else. i can't remember who it is. but i had not been inside the white house until that, until i got posted there. and i was -- the body was in the east room. the casket was in the east room. and the greenroom is where all of the dignitaries gathered. the east room runs north and south. the w
implementing his grand plan. in the western theater, he had two commanders. a man named hallick and don carlos buel. and he was trying to get these two generals in the fall of 1961 to push into kentucky and later into tennessee, but he can't get them to act. he complains about, my generals won't do anything. this is lincoln saying the same thing about mcclellan and other generals as well. and lincoln has also by this time got his own ideas about the war. he wants to push the south at a whole bunch of different points and he's writing about doing this, but again, this is very much similar to what mcclellan is saying. the problem is, the generals have a plan but they won't act. well, finally, in february of 1862, some of the union generals decide they should do something. and ulysses s. grant and flag officer foote in the army take donaldson on the tennessee and cumberland rivers. this is very critical here, because this breaks apart the confederate cordon defense, their defensive system in the west. it completely comes apart. here's where braxton bragg enters the picture. what follows in the co
want to tantalize you to make sure you look around and see three or four people you don't know and you introduce yourself. and it is a celebration of my inclusion among 15 people i greatly admire who are being presented with the medal of freedom by president obama. there's no president in history from whose hand i would be more honored to receive this medal. and it gives me a chance to say here i'm especially grateful for this lunch because when we get the medal, we can't talk it turns out. i'm grateful to have the opportunity to say here that i would be crazy if i didn't understand that this was a medal for the entire women's movement. [ applause ] it belongs to shirley chism and patsy and in the future it would be great for robin morgan -- i'm lobbying a little bit here. barbara smith. and so many more. and it has already honored rosa parks and rachel carson and dorothy and my dear friend chief of the cherokee nation who i accompanied when she received her medal. now, of course with all of that company i get uppity, i can remember dick cheney received as did henry hyde whose self-nam
if you did like it, period? i don't recall. >> again, that's kind of a health policy matter, really outside my lane -- >> you don't know when you first realized you couldn't keep your health insurance even if you liked it, period? >> would you agree with me that credibility or the lack thereof in one area of life could impact credibility or the lack there of and any other area of life? >> i suppose it could. >> in your written testimony, you wrote as you know, october 1st was the launch date of the new website, healthcare.gov. i did know that. i didn't know why. and i'm going to read to you a quote from secretary sebelius. she said and i'll paraphrase, she was hurried into producing a website by october the 1st because the law required it. i'll read you the direct quote. in an ideal world, there would have been a lot more testing. we did not have the luxury of that with a law that said it's go time on october the 1st of -- mr. park, i don't know what ideal world she's referring to so i'm going to stick with one we're in. what law was she referencing? what law required this website t
's done, because they know what we'll do if they don't do what we warn them about. that's not just the case today. and if it's a terrorist group as well, the capacity to go and identify through intelligence means and then to have precision guided munitions on a training base or government that may have provided support today, we could do that. but more likely be the u.s. that would do it. i don't think they have the will to agree to such a thing. it takes the consensus of nato among the allies and define the operation roles. i don't see that. i think that means as nato, we really don't have that deterrent capability. if i could add one more point, i don't see -- maybe it's just me and i'm a little thick -- i don't see missile defense as having a deterrent capability, other than making sure we are not deterred in our efforts to deal with the regional challenge. so the example walt gave, if iran is doing something in the middle east and they have a missile capacity, the fact that we know we can blunt that missile capacity, would therefore mean we're not deterred from dealing with tha
if we had the constitution, right, don't you think? [ applause ] the fact that three-quarters of all immigrants now fighting a great battle in this town are women and children. you know all of those things. but those are ten. i just picked arbitrarily, so i dare anybody to say that this revolution is over because now we are on to the ways of denormalizing violence and dominance. we're understanding that we'll never have democratic countries unless we have democratic families. we're understanding that the idea of conquering nature and women is the problem and not the solution. we're returning to the original and natural paradigm of 95% of human history which was the circle, not the pyramid, not the hierarchy. as bella abzug would say, our movement came from a period of dependence. we were dependent. so we naturally had to get up there and become independent and self-identified, and now we're ready for a declaration of interdependence, of interdependence among our movements and within each other. we are discovering that we in this room and everywhere else and we in nature and we human
unemployment -- or employment. >> so i don't have a precise estimate, but every three months all of the participants in the fomc fill out a survey and indicate what they think the normal longer run level of unemployment is. in our most recent survey in september, the range of opinion was 5% to 6%. >> okay. tell me, what do you believe the real unemployment rate is today? >> well, the measured unemployment rate is 7.3% -- >> i know the measured unemployment rate. that wasn't my question. >> as we've discussed previously, we have very high incidents of involuntary, part-time employment. we have all too many people who appear to have dropped out of the labor force. >> i don't want to belabor this committee hearing any longer than what i have to. would you agree that it is at least close to or probably over 10%? >> certainly by broader measures, it is that high. >> would you also agree that right now in america, we have the greatest income disparity that we have had since the great depression, right before the great depression? >> we've had widening wage inequality and income inequal
. >>. >> correct. so to be clear, these modules don't transmit any specific user information. is that correct? >> correct. >> so when cbs evening news ran its evening report based on a leak, presumingly from the majority staff, which we don't know, of a partial transcript, they said the security issues raised in the document could lead to identify theft among buying insurance, that cannot be true based ond what we just established in our back and forth. is that correct? >> that's correct. i think there was some rearra e rearrangement in how it was portrayed. so just to summarize, it will not relate to parts that were active. they did not relate to any part of the system that handles personal consumer information. and there was, in fact, no possibility of identity theft despite the leak. >> correct. >> thank you, mr. chao, i yield back. >> woul the jebtle man yield? have you read the november 6th letter from the ranking member to me? >> yes, in facts, i think i co-sined that letter. >> oh, that's good. even today there are significant security leaks that the ranking member was concerned if di
're really watching that closely. we don't want people to stop taking medications when they need it, but we just want them to be better educated about the quality of the services they're receiving. just a brief moment. what we did is look at knee replacements, mus skeletal has been one of the highest in the plan, so we look at cost and quality of care that people were receiving and could we take a network and tier it so that we could pay just a little bit home run and inclumore and include t expenses if somebody was willing to go to a provider. we have four tiers within the network. and we leveraged the blue cross and blue shield centers of excellence and tiered it even further. we started with quality and added a cost component, so this is some of the results from 2012 and 2013 when we implemented that. about 264 joint replacements or back fusion surgeries in the last 18 months or so. in the middle blue bar, you can see the impact to the cost of someone who chose to go to the highest quality, most cost efficient providers around the country. we saw about a 20 to 30% reduction in costs. whe
ignore the misuse, and misuse jeopardizes the virtual ability of the currencies in the longer run. i don't think there is disagreement at all on those points. as it relates to areas -- i just don't think there is use for the laws at the exchange level. know your customer, those kinds of provisions. the greatest challenge, the greatest area we have to grapple with is how do we enforce the enforcement techniques. and the fact that this is a global phenomenon. this is something that was just issued in march of this year. the guidance that directors just talk about, the financial action task force, their guidance on this issue was just issued this summer, i think in july. my sense is that most of the world is not applying money laundering principles. getting from here to there is really the issue that the four of us would have to grapple with. >> thank you. how do you go about reconciling the consensus? >> i'll take the second part first. i don't know that i heard a lot of disagreement or anything we would generally disagree with from this panel or even really from the first panel. i was hea
here, i just don't get it, that six in a day doesn't seem like 60,000 simultaneous users. i thank the gentleman. >> thank you, mr. chairman. and thank each one of you for coming to testify. and mr. park, you are not old enough probably to remember this, but i remembered the $6 million man. you are now the $600 million man because you're coming in to fix all this. so we're hopeful that you, based on the people that i represent, that you're successful by november 30th. we do want to ask you, though, how do we define success? because the talking points are all that it's going to be fixed for the vast majority of americans, as they go on, and we see mr. langford here. he can't get on. so what is success? is it a 98% without wait time? how do we define success, so on december 1st, we'll know whether you were worth $600 million or not? >> thank you for your comments and your question. first of all, i'm just a small part of the team working to fix this. >> what's success? >> so success is -- first of all, the site will most definitely not be perfect. even sites that are mature -- >> i kn
>> on the second, on the special operations, i don't know exactly the intent. madelyn can probably address that better. from a standpoint of relevance, the special operations versus a heavy brigade, today, for the reality we live in, is a lot more relevant to the defense capabilities of nato and europe. >> i'm going to dodge that one and go after the other one. but i think that the nato dpr clearly put forth nato's view as far as being part of an alliance and the fact that there clearly are nuclear weapons that the u.s. assigned to nato, is something that both the hlg, the npg, all the rest of the bodies that nato looks at, and with a good deal of sear yourness. on the one hand there's been, particularly over the last six months-ish, a creation of an arms control committee, as well as with the hlg. the beginning of, okay, what do we need to do to look at confidence-building measures, transparency measures in a way that will inspire some -- reciprocal actions on the part of russia as far as the foundation for reduction. so that's out there. but the commitment on the part of the alli
and i were young but as i recall you don't think that you're going to get sick at that time. look, i am confident that the model that we have built which works off of the existing private spurns system is one that will succeed. we are going to have to, a, fix the website everybody feels confident about that. we'll have to remarket and rebrand and that will be challenging in this political environment. but keep in mind in the first month we also had 12 million people visit the site. the demand is there. there are 41 million people who don't have health insurance. the folks in the individual market many of them are going to get a much better deal in the marketplaces and so we just got to keep on improving the customer experience and make sure that we're fending off efforts not to fix the problem because if somebody wants to help fix it, i'm all game but fending off efforts to completely undermine it. >> let me turn to the economy, the broader economy, probably the predominant concern of people in this room. we're stuck in an economic pattern of okay but not great growth. your friend, larr
worldwide. and he went on and said people don't go to college just to do better in life but to do something for the world. how many of you who are going to be doctors are willing to spend your days in began na. how many of you are willing to work in foreign service and spend your days trailing around the world. on your willingness to contr contribute your life to this world. i think it can. but the effort must be far greater than we have ever made in the past. >> so that might have think the end of it, except that there were people in the audyeps a married couple who decided to take it one step further. and they ended up with this petition drive where they got 800 signatures and the drive wasn't just we think this was a great idea. it was if you set something up like this we would join it. two weeks later at the palace in san francisco, he announced it and called it the peace corp. and then when he became president, it was an executive order march 1st, 1961. later sergeant shriver who was the first director of the peace corp, he said if this hadn't happened, if the petition hadn't been pres
shutdowns before. we've had many disagreements in the past. one problem with american politics is we don't learn the lessons from the jackson and lincoln era, those lessons are politics are rough, tough, they're defamatory. we need to have a new civility in politics and compromise for the sake of promise is historical. politicians today are so thin skinned. they're like little school children. you have to have less respect than we do for the 19th century guys because they could take it. that's how american politics is. that's how lincoln was. once lincoln thought he was right, as in fighting the civil war, he said let it be started by war, then it will be tried by war. the results of free elections for the presidency must be respected. lincoln was rigorous and ruthless. they sent 750,000 men to die. i think lincoln might have chuckled we're so hot and bothered about this current, temporary, crisis. >> that's a hard act to follow, but do you want to comment on that comparison? do you want to comment on what james just said? >> strictly speaking, nothing but another civil war is equivalent
and complex personality can fused many. including johnson himself. sometimes i don't even know what's going on up there, he once said. tapping his head. johnson was raised some smam town, america. at birth, he weighed 10 pounds and for the first three months of his life was simply called baby. a childhood friend once remarked if johnson conned lead, then he didn't care much about playing. later in life, he bought a ranch near his hometown in texas where he spent his vacations, his retirement, and where he died of a heart attack in 1973. his biggest supporter throughout his wife was his wife. they got married on november 17, 1934 with$1934 with a 2.auto ri sears roebuck. from birth, she was called lady bird, when a nurse observed she was pretty as a lady bird. johnson proposed on their first date and even though she had a flame feeling about him, his forward behavior stunned her and she initially refused. he was center stage of friend once said of the relationship. but she was in charge of the crops and always a part of the performance. mrs. johnson was known for her campaign to improve the
.6% of that. why don't we focus on the larger issue and fix it? because as i said earlier, it's much better to light a candle than to curse the darkness. >> the gentlemen would yield, maybe we could close on a positive note. both mr. palner who has talked about stress testing end to end and mr. van rokel who knows that microsoft never put a new operating system up that wasn't stress end to end. it still had bugs and vulnerabilities and when ever you create a new driver, you create a new one that has to be tested, but stress testing end to end was something this committee wanted to know at the onset. why it hadn't been done because it is a best practice, which geo has kindly made clear. and i believe it's in the record. we are trying to get to the point where best practices will always be used and in this case, not because of these individuals per se, they're here as experts, but this development over three and a half million years shortcuted some best practices ab it's not the first time and it won't be the last time, but it's won where as i said in the opening statement. it's so important
a week, somebody is here doing something. and i think -- i think at times they don't even realize the importance of the things they do. in the platoon, but i'm pretty sure that the parents of the fallen soldiers that we lay to rest greatly appreciate it. ♪ ♪ every morning before they roll out, ideally, the guy, we like to have a lot of eyes on things because some things can get missed along the way. that is our final check before they roll out. and the biggest thing about horses and the type of horses we have is that they differ in size. so each horse has to be adjusted the right way inside the harness. and that is the biggest thing, if the horse is not comfortable in the harness, it's hard for him to concentrate on what we want him to do. we try to make the horse as comfortable as he can, and not have something pinching him or too tight or too loose and when it's time to break, they can break, and when it's time to pull, they can pull. we check them day in and day out. every moment while they're in the cemetery, we make adjustments to make sure everything is properly adjusted
as a negotiated settlement, the reconciliation process. we still don't know where that will go. but to say that the women are concerned is an understatement. they fear they may be a bargaining chip in that unnegotiated process with the taliban. so what do we say particular ply in the backdrop of a united states that's war weary, where we're focused on our many challenges at home, what can we do to ensure this progress is not reversed. and as secretary kerry said, this strategic necessity the women represent to a better prosperous, peaceful, stable afghanistan is realized. and both of you, i know, have a great deal to say on this subject. >> well, even as our troops drawdown, start to drawdown, there's still many, many groups on the ground in afghanistan. it gives us a chance now, all americans, really, the chance to support those groups, to find the groups. the doctor is here, opus prize winner to promote her schools and women all over afghanistan. leslie schweitzer, fundraiser for university of afghanistan. i think maybe we may get some questions out of afghanistan from american universit
. but in generation is also very libertarian. and i don't think we need two liberal parties. but if republicans would just figure out -- >> ted cruz says we have two already. >> turn the volume down. just pull it back a little bit. the pro-life community isn't going to start voting democratic if helps just sort of push it down the priority list and talk about it a lot less. if they would do that, i think they would do a whole lot better, but they can't seem to get themselves to do that. every state? no, probably not every state. but i've been stunned as how same-sex marriage has caught up. i never would have dreamed it would have caught on and moved as fast. >> think about 2004. >> yeah. never thought. so the thing is -- and i think this country is changing faster than we've ever seen it before. and so these things will be in most states. >> what do you think, chuck, ten years from now? >> i think it's legal nationally. supreme court basically almost opened the door with prop 8. i think the next time gay marriage gets to the supreme court, they will essentially -- it will get to this whole recognitio

a little by i don't think it would have changed much. he is incapable of doing it the same way. he always has another thought and sees nothing wrong with putting the comma over here or changing the position of this word, if he thinks it would be better. he doesn't have the sense that he wants it frozen, which i think is probably a good idea. let me just touch on a few places i'm sure some of you are as well aware as i am of these things. it is interesting. what parts of the speech were different in some other version than the ones that we had. you may know that on this dmoent and upon this continent he couldn't decide what he wanted and maybe the next one f he did another version, he would have went to upon but he went back and forth on he originally wrote if we assume the nikolai version is the oldest version, and i do, he originally wrote, we have come to dedicate, but apparently at gettysburg he said -- he repeated what he said in the sentence before "we are met, we are met to dedicate." in revising it, he saw his first thought was the best, rather than repeat we are met. it somehow wo
don't have ta clear identification with a single institution. people have identifications with multiple institutions. they don't have the benefit that they are being multigenerational with it. so it's going to sound terrible, but it maybe it's a bit more retail in los angeles. i don't mean exchange of money. it's much more about visits. it's not about integrating that institution yet into one's own narrative and life and family life. >> you get a sense of that by the exhibition where there's a lot of wonderful retail architecture. thank you. it's been my pleasure to chat with you. >>. [ applause ] >>> coming up tonight on c-span 3, a senate hearing on nsa surveillance programs. after that from the atlantic council, a preview of the upcoming nato conference in britain. >>> and later a senate hearing on employers who commit fraud by not paying payroll taxes. >>> now the warm sun and the kindly rain have brought crops. they are beginning to bend as a sign of ripeness. he strives into the field of gold and grain and takes a few for testing. he crushes the heads between his han
that's going to be unstable for generations to come, and i don't think we can have the entire underside of eurasia in turmoil. and expect it not to demand the attention of the world's foremost alliance which is right next door. i think this will be a priority, really the top priority, whether we wish it to be or not. pivoting to asia would be wonderful, but i don't think the middle east will be willing to accommodate. i think there are potential roles on a steady state basis for nato or nato members, and certainly also in crises, which i think unfortunately will demand nato's attention. second, i think russia looms, at least as importantly, and i think here nato has to think about a hedge against russian futures. and the russian future that i worry most about is a declining russia, and this is in part due to the shale gas revolution, which is dropping the price of energy, which i think in essence is going to bankrupt russia's state business model. and then there's also some very daunting demographic factors that are going to, i think, really create some new challenges for russia. and i
the washington zoo the entire time. luckily she was 16 and i don't know if she had a problem with that. the grandmother got on the train and we kept our family vacation intact. the reason i am telling you this story, you can imagine a little girl from carrollton, georgia riding the train and going into the dining car in the morning and sitting down at what appeared to be an elegant table with the table cloth at that time and a flower and looking out of the window and seeing as she crossed the bridge, the washington monument. the feeling that i had knowing that i had just entered carationcaratio carinati carination's capital. on the east side it said last day which is praise be to god. as the sunrises over washington, the first lights of sun strike the words praise be to got. i try to remember that as we come into washington. it is a special city. i think for those that live here, it's important for us to remember that it is a very special seay city. of the 1974 campaign. this little girl from georgia and my father decides to run for congress. there were no republicans from georgia. not
earlier, we don't live in a static world. other countries are not just waiting to see what it is we do. they are out there negotiating access to key markets for our exporters. we need to be on the field as well. we need to make sure that not only are we on the field and getting access to markets, but that we're doing it it in a way that raises the standards of trading system that introduces new disciplines to deal with emerging systems. there's a real stark choice out there. and we made that choice. the choice is are we going to go for a race to the top where we're trying to raise standards in our tpp partners have bought into that or are we going to get dragged into a race to the bottom. that's what other trading nations might have us do. and our goal is to reach these agreements on high standards so it can level the playing field so our workers here in the u.s. have a chance to compete because they are the most productive workers in the world, but we need that level playing field if we're going to succeed. >> it's an unrelated issue, but do the tensions over spying and nsa stuff, is
or sexuality, that's likely to take at least a century, too, don't you think? and we're only 40 years into it. also as original cultures say, as wilma mankiller said, it takes four generations to heal one act of violence. so truly we are just beginning. so i would like to contribute a few examples of the adventures before us and unlike david letterman, i'm not going to try to put them in any kind of order because each one is crucial. and anyway, they're all just reminders for people in this room. one, women's issues aren't separate from economic issues or vice versa. paying women equally for comparable work done by men would be the biggest economic stimulus this country would possibly have. the institute for women's policy research tells us that paying women of all races equally to white men would put $200 billion more into the economy every year and would be way more effective than propping up banks and wall street because this money would get spent, not put into swiss bank accounts. it would create jobs and help the poorest kids who are those who depend on a mother's income. but do we hear
to me, although i don't believe that lincoln -- that the delivery manuscript that he held in his hand was the nickolai copy. for reasons that i'll say in a minute. but it does make sense that he has trouble getting -- if that were the case, it would explain why he has this sort of weak repetition of the unfinished work. the unfinished work, the great task remain before us. because it comes right exactly at that point in the manuscript. in my analysis and my book "lincoln seward," i got interested in the kind of way that almost musical notation he uses the word "here." but that's a little technical. but i think he's the kind of letterician and rhetorical master who thought at that level. and i think if there's one criticism that some people make, it is that he took one of the "heres" out in this version, the bliss version. that in the everett and ban versions before he had one more "here." for which they here gave the full measure of devotion. in the last one he took it out. i still seem to want to hear it. and then there doesn't seem to be any doubt that he said "under god". there is

and feeble. >> conrad? >> conrad, that's exactly right. i don't know how you would assess manning or snowden when you throw them in that mix because both of those have to be looked at. that's what it was in 2004. >> i appreciate that. david, your thoughts? >> i can't put a ranking on how bad he was but he was bad and the damage he did was considerable because he passed hundreds of documents, secret documents, to the russians and did so over a long period of time. in addition, he did betray three people, two of whom were executed. they were also betrayed by al gr dritch ames in terms of people executed or imprisoned, i would think that ames had a higher number. there were ten that he detrayed who are no longer living and many others who went to prison. in the case of hanssen, as mike as pointed out, there were technical secrets that he gave away that the russians were very happy to have and are very important. the biggest, of course, was the secret tunnel under the russian soviet and then russian embassy on wisconsin avenue in washington which was built by the fbi, operated by the nsa. it was
don't matter. routine white collar crime, food stamp fraud, who needs to investigate that? who needs that? many of the things that became too minuscule to get the attention of federal law enforcement proved later to be critical to the fundraising activity of terrorist organizations or the fundamental fundraising for international organized crime groups. so that would be my word of advice to policymakers in the hope that they would listen is really take a look. when you sacrifice one program for the sake of another, really take a look at how important that program -- why was that program created and what benefit comes from it? >> thank you. >> there's strong practical advantages to integrating with the law enforcement agents themselves. sometimes i think they operate in separate spheres, and for good reason at times. but if you want to get practical and be able to take law enforcement steps and make sure that you're focused on the right people, the integration of those two efforts can be extraordinary powerful. at the police department and over the years particularly accept september
are outside this country. we have to learn to deal with that. >> governor? >> i mean directly, i don't have the number on the pacific, but with the ttip agreement, we think it it will go up about $2 billion, which is a lot. i think the other thing is you have to look at context in what's happening in the broader market. there are some things working in our advantage. energy costs in the u.s. are going down. that's not true in a lot of other countries around the world. we can take advantage of that. the logistics costs of transferring goods are being a bigger piece of something relative to labor piece of that good. we can take advantage of that as well. i think the market in so many ways is turning to our advantage right now. and in my mind, it would be a shame if we didn't create those additional jobs because of not having these agreements done. >> we should always keep in mind tpp or ttip free trade supports growth. it supports new jobs, foreign investment, innovation, so in the end, the consumer benefits from all of that and creates jobs and in a world of free trade, there will be product
level to deter conflict and increase other options so that our state craft options don't run out prematurely or are less than effective against a wide range of threats. we have to increase the tools on the spacecraft to prevent these things. >> ellen? >> i would say probably, the ability of everybody i know, nevertheless, make sure that's a member of nato, that you really commit to your defense goals. the second thing, i would say, is really look at those things which could enable nato at large to take greater advantage, i think, of its various abilities and to focus of the new strategic and maybe that's an area he hasn't totally taken advantage of, like cyber. make sure the nato members are protected. so all these things that need nato to be able to practice. and the next ting that right now are only in the province of one country to provide. i would say the u.s. much of these stablts. other.com, how do we spread this around so nato isn't totally reliable on one country, for example. >> i would say for them to take a fresh look at the threat in a way that's not static. i've spen
legislation which imposes an obligation on one sex that it does not impose on another. you don't have to take my word for it. the principal scholarship used by the proponents is this article in the yale law journal by professor emerson where he says clearly that after the equal rights amendment is ratified, the courts would have to strike down nonsupport laws which impose the duty of support on men only. now, this takes away from the wife and mother her legal right to be a full-time wife and mother and to bring up her baby in her own home. and i think that's a basic and most fundamental right women have. then you move in the second area, which is the area of the draft. of course, as you know, women are not subject to the draft like men are today. there's no dispute about the fact that equal rights amendment will positively make women subject to the draft and on an equal basis with men. and again, we can refer to the same law journal article use the by the proponents in congressional debates and in state legislative hearings and spelled out in page after page of how women will have to carry th
. well, anyway, we don't -- they couldn't afford the lawyers perhaps. oh, they do have a lot of lawyers. anyway, let's get on with the clip. what we're going to see today is a debate by phyllis schlafly and pat schroeder congresswoman from the state of colorado. she was a feminist and pro-e.r.a. supporter. so we could turn down the lights and we'll start the clip. >> bill zimmerman and virginia sherwood. >> i'd like to start first of all, and i can direct this at both of you, but i think mainly it will probably be for you, mrs. schlafly. that is the quotation we started the law with, equality of the rights under the law will not be denied or abridged by the united states or by any state on account of sex. now, you are with stop e.r.a. why are you against this? >> well, the language of the amendment i think shows why we didn't find out what was the matter with it until we got well into this constitutional debate. most people thought it meant equal pay for equal work, but that's now already guaranteed by the equal employment opportunity act of 1972. but we have found that the equal rights
like they promised to. and for a long time, i don't know what the latest numbers are, but for years, i know, and it's probably still true that the university of michigan was very high at least on the number of graduates that went into the peace corps. and they also used to do training here in the early years. they used this as a training spot. so, you know, there's a lot of ownership, let's say. >> members of the graduating class, my fellow americans, it is a great pleasure to be here tod today. >> we're in the university of michigan stadium. this is where president johnson announces the great society program which was his major plan for improving the country. he gave it at the 1964 commencement. it was may 22nd, six months after kennedy was shot. johnson had just been in office for his -- for six months and he would be running for election. his first time to be elected president. and this was seen by him and his staff as a good time to roll out this program that was going to be his touchstone of what he wanted to do with the presidency. and it would be a big audience. in fact it was a
